Organized by N214GAM
Standard format

Format: Sets and promo cards will be considered legal on the day they are legal on PTCGO. Any bugs that are announced in Discord and are seen to be used by either player will result in a game loss for that player if the opposing player is able to screen shot proof.

Check In: Players are expected to check in during each round of the tournament. If a player does not check in for two consecutive rounds they will be dropped from the event. During the Top Cut players who are 5 minutes late to check in will receive a Game 1 Loss. Players 10 minutes late will receive a Game 2 and match loss.

Connection Loss: In the event a player loses connection during a match the player is issued a game loss. If the connection is lost within the five minute check in period AND the game can be started within the five minute check in time the game will be played. In this situation please screen shot you sending the game request to your opponent as well as the time on your computer for verification. Games that are determined by time should Request a Judge to verify result.

Sportsmanship: While we aim to have a competitive event we expect our players to adhere to high levels of Sportsmanship. Players should not maliciously communicate with their opponent (friendly banter stops being friendly when one player is unhappy.) If a player is a short period late to a match and both players agree a judge can reset the match to be played. If at any time you feel your opponent is not exhibiting good sportsmanship with photographic proof please request a judge on Discord with your proof.

Streaming: Players in Top Cut will be required to be in the Discord to stream the Top Cut match series. All rounds will be streamed. Players in the Discord and screen sharing may be given packs or card prizes as an incentive for screen sharing in the Discord.

Rounds:

4-8 players = 3 Swiss Rounds and No Top Cut
9-12 players = 4 Swiss Rounds and Top 4 Cut
13-20 players = 5 Swiss Rounds and Top 4 Cut
21-32 players = 5 Swiss Rounds and Top 8 Cut
33-64 players = 6 Swiss Rounds and Top 8 Cut
65-128 players = 7 Swiss Rounds and Top 8 Cut

Prizing: Prizing will be sent as packs through PTCGO. In order to receive your prizing please add Trican to your friend list as soon as you are in the Top 8. Prizing will be sent as players are eliminated if a friend request has been sent. Delays in prizing due to a lack of friend requests may happen. If/when we transition to PTCG Live codes will replace traded pack prizing. Prizing will be based on attendance.
